lol, you`d be able to pass the ball to yourself by kicking it up hill and letting it roll back down to you :P
hehe. have you ever been to Norfolk Island? squidgy little island country near New Zealand. it was settled by 7 mutineers and 2 tahitian women. now theres some 1500 people living on it.
bigbadgoat, a real goalie knows where the ball is going 2 go, and like u could do any better with 2 defenders on ur back trying to control the ball.
okay then, 4 the africans, use a big stick. there. and once again, y do u need money 2 hav fun. i`ll bet u if they all of a sudden got paid 100 trillion dollars, they would still choose soccer/futbol over any other sport.
Soccer/Futball the best, it`s the only sport I like. How can you people not like it, pfsh, uncultured swines.
yeah, the GDP for africa is about $110, so they would make $10 in about 1 month.
Listen, if you`re a god damn superstar making $30M/year, and you have a net thats avout 20-30 times the size of the goaltender, and you miss the net, when the goalie`s only chance of saving it is a blatant guess as to where the shooter is going to kick it, you have no excuse for not scoring every single time. I don`t care.
wow. you can raise the puck off the ice, no way you can hit the top corner every time, or even a quarter of the time you tried. not even gretzky could do that.
Look Flyangel i`m on neither side here- i don`t care about the soccer/football debate. It`s only a name get over it people! But bringing japan into this and hiroshima is bad taste. And calling us morons is real mature by the way. Even is you are trying to be funny or sacastic is some way that is REALLY BAD TASTE. Don`t involve stuff like that in moronic little arguements please.
No, it could easily be photoshopped. On Photoshop, it`s easy to find a picture and make it go on, sort of like a label, onto another picture. So he could have just taken a picture of a soccer (or football, to you brits)field layout, shaped it to go on realistically, and pasted it.
I am a pro at photoshop, and that is not hard to do. Trust me, i know ;)
American football hardly uses feet except to run
im british and i have no clue what you just said.
its the SAME GAME no matter what you call it!
now please shut up about it!
i guess now you are going to have an argument about tomato (toe-may-toe) vs. tomato (toe-mah-toe).
The Chinese 7,000 years ago played a game was called Tsu Chu with a fur stuffed leather ballThe Japanese called thier game Kemari and played a game against China in 611A.DThe Romans and the Greeks had a game called HarpastumFinally from Britain we get the story of football beginning with the beheading of a Danish Prince. It is said that his head was used as a ball and that as he was hated so much that villagers passed around drawings depicting the event with a ball instead of his head and that is how it became a sport kicking the ball into a specified goal or net.
actually i went golfing with my friend`s uncle 1 time. im not gonna lie, i sucked, but it was still boring as hell.
and ur sayin baseball is expensive 2 play. DIMWIT, CARD BOARD 4 BASES, CHEAP METAL BAT, 10 BUCKS, A BASEBALL, $1. OMG!!!!! AN ARM AND A LEG!
and y does stuff have 2 be expensive 2 hav fun?
and hockey, that is so easy! i mean i cant shoot at like 90 mph but i can hit the corner of the net. i like hockey its fun to watch and play and it takes skill 2 play. just not better than soccer.
I HATE SOCCER AND FOOTBALL .....SO SUCK ON THAT!
As for your third world country comment? Any pro athlete who plays has tremendous passion for their sport. If not, anyone with any bit of atletic talent would easily make a living playing sports. Dont give me that passion bit. Balls are cheap. pitching mounds arent, hockey stadiums and gear isnt, golf courses definately arent.
I dont get how little goals get scored in soccer/football. Can you possibly make the net any bigger? has to be the largest goal in any sport. how many shots are so blatantly wide during a game? dozens. These are pro soccer/football players who can`t hit the broad side of a barn! Some of these people miss bad during penalty kicks! happened all the time at the world cup (which I watched religiously, I love watching all forms of sport)
as for your baseball/soccer player comparison, the football player would be amazingly lucky to even make contact with 10% of the pitches he faced.
As for me, I love hockey. There is no way you will ever see a pro hockey player miss then net as much the best soccer players in the world do, they wouldnt even make it to the minor leagues. Now tell me that sport doesnt require talent.
^^ o yea bigbadgoat, how many hits r there in an MLB game? a lot. try getting ur team past past 10 people and a pro goalkeeper. how many goals r there in a...lets say spanish premier leage game. not a lot. making a goal is the hardest thing to do. i`ll bet u, Man U can play baseball better than the Yankees can play soccer. plus those 3rd world countries play soccer cuz they hav passion. every kid growing up in lets say Brazil has a dream of being a soccer superstar. no country has passion for a sport as much as soccer. joga bonito bitch.
now, about soccer/football/futebol`s popularity world-wide... would that have ANYTHING to do with the fact that all it requires to play is.. a ball? no equipment, no snow, not even goal posts, really. I mean how many third world countries play soccer? can`t a lot of these people not afford to eat, yet play soccer for hours a day???
just because the majority favors something, doesnt mean its the best... I mean, Hitler was voted into power, and so was Bush... twice. The whole world know how good of decisons those have been!

unless of course, you only mean the north in which case, we`re out of the civil war but i appreciate your concern
First off, both evolved from the same game, both evolved in england. Two things evolved- football that was closer to rugby, and football which is football we know or soccer. it became to confusing so they began to call football (soccer) association football, shortened to "assoccer" shortened to "soccer" which is easier for a child to say. so one thing shows from this, soccer is an english word, NOT an americanized one
Second like i said the football which was "rugby" became less popular in the motherland and spread to english colonies (australia mainly) and later evoled to the american football we know.
a limited expla
Perhaps I missed it, but I haven`t seen any posts where people have been saying "itz soccer lolz not futbal u stupid brits" or anything of the sort. I have, however, seen at least two posts saying that it`s FOOTBALL, not SOCCER.Maybe it`s football in your part of the world. It`s soccer in mine.All in all, who really gives a sh-t either way?
It`s soccor to americans, don`t be such an ignorant fool.__________________________________________
NO flaming intended, just wanted to say I LMFAO at the brutal, brutal irony in this post. Thank you, tainteddemon. (I know you corrected it immediately, it`s still f*cking hilarious though. And Americans should be capitalised as well, fyi.)
Sorry if I totally confused everyone, but I know I`ve seen the website for it somewhere, but it was so long ago and I can`t remember it...surely someone must know.
U.S. - SoccerRest of the world - Football
The U.S. just has some irrational `independence` complex, `sall.
STOP ARGUEING! It -is- that way. No if`s and`s or but`s about it. It`s different. So Shut up. And its not fake.
And one of those fields looked like that! Well, kinda, it was on this hill, and it was awful to have to run your ass off on it...
well said... plus everyone but the americans knows which football is the better sport. Its obvious which one is the better and is more popular as more countries play it seriously... think about it...
People who have circa 57799 posts have no life. (and perhaps a micro-c*ck. Well, not perhaps, but money can be bet on it. Large amounts of it, too.)
And it`s rather funny.
If this is real, it really wouldn`t be all that hard to do.
I love how sh*t like this starts fights between brits and us.. its great. you aholes.
Oh well. Soccer sucks anyways.
It`s soccor to americans, don`t be such an ignorant fool.
